Hello… is it you we’re looking for?

Khoollect editorial and social media internship

The Khoollect team is offering an exciting opportunity to an energetic, enthusiastic and switched-on person. We’re seeking an up-and-coming editorial and social media star to complete a paid internship at Khoollect. The internship will run for four months – from January-April 2017 – and could become a permanent role for the right person. We’re a small but perfectly formed team that is creative, adaptable and excited about the content we produce. We’re looking for someone who’ll make a positive addition to Team Khoollect.

The perfect candidate for this internship must have:

  • Fantastic work ethic
  • The ability to pay very close attention to detail
  • The ability to work independently
  • Strong writing and self-editing skills
  • Knowledge of social media conventions
  • Enviable organisational abilities
  • A willingness to contribute content ideas
  • The skills to create snappy copy in the Khoollect tone of voice
  • An understanding of the Khoollect brand and our community
  • An ability to meet weekly deadlines and help out colleagues where required
  • A reliable, positive attitude and willingness to learn
  • An interest in lifestyle subjects: from food to fashion, to film and travel

In an ideal world, you might also have experience using WordPress (or a similar publishing platform), and experience working across a variety of social media platforms. (Knowledge of MailChimp is a bonus.)

Your days will be varied, and can include such things as organising competitions, writing content for the site and its social media platforms, coordinating interviews, scheduling social media, brainstorming with the team, helping to plan events, supporting our marketing and partnership endeavours, assisting with newsletter content…and even occasionally hand modelling for shoots (yes, really). You’ll have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of content creation in a digital publishing environment.

  1. I am a senior student studying in a Chinese university.I got to know you when seeing ‘The Little Paris Kitchen’ on the Internet a few years ago. I am really into it.And after that, I watched almost all your videos I could find. After reading this article, I have the idea of working with you. But it is a shame that I cannot achieve it now.I will work for it.

    Even though I cannot use Youtube in China, I will still support you by recommending your videos to people around me.

    Have a good day.
